A grant scheme to support local performing arts groups in the borough is back open for 2018.
The Harry and Mavis Pilkington Fund will award in the region of £550 this year to performing arts groups that apply for funding, with the maximum amount awarded to any one group likely to be around the £200 mark.
Over the last few years, grants have been awarded to The Unnamed Players Drama Group, St Helens Concert Band, The Citadel, The Pilkington Choir, The St Helens Singers, St Helens Sinfonietta, St Helens Youth Brass Band and St Helens Choral Society.
Performing arts groups looking to benefit from the Harry and Mavis Pilkington Fund must be a constituted group with a bank account.
For further information and to request an application form, please contact St Helens Council’s Arts Development Manager Cath Shea on 01744 677448 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for applications is midnight on Monday 12 March.
